“We welcome today’s sentence which follows a lengthy and disturbing investigation into Littleboy’s depraved activity. This is the worst case I have seen of this nature in my 17-year career.
“The sentence reflects the serious and repugnant nature of the images in his possession. We hope this case sends a clear message that the internet is no hiding place for depravity and thanks to the technology available to the police, the pedlars of child pornography and other illegal images will sooner or later be caught, and will face the full force of the law.”
